Frozen yogurt

Ciao Everyone!!

Welcome to Florida

Where the sun is bright

Mickey mouse loves you

NASCAR threatens to blow your eardrums

And winter days are between 65-85 degrees, give or take depending on how bipolar the weather is feeling that day:P

However, there is one really great thing about it

Every day is still a good day for FROZEN YOGURT:)

Which makes me a happy girl

And just like with most things I tend to love, as far as baking....

That means I had to find a way to make some on my own;)

But here's the problem...

I don't own an ice cream maker

Nor will I succumb to drowning a once healthy snack option (yogurt) in nasty white sugars and other such things (unless we're talking chocolate chips or sprinkles... in which case, that is acceptable as the perfect accesory... just follow me for a minute;] )

Soooo... in case you haven't already figured it out... I'm about to give you the simplest, most delicious frozen yogurt recipe you've had. And it's homemade! Which makes it special:)

One of the most beautiful things about this recipe is that you can alter the amounts/flavorings to be whatever you want! (See my notes below.) It's like a magic crystal ball or something;)

Actually's better than magic... It's 

Homemade Frozen Yogurt
(original recipe)
(makes...however much you want!)
Plain, non fat Greek yogurt
Agave nectar/Stevia, to taste
Pinch salt
A few drops of extracts of choice
Add-ins of choice 
About 1-2 tablespoons vanilla almond milk to every 1/2 cup yogurt

1) Combine all ingredients except almond milk
2) Freeze at least 1 hour for every 1 cup yogurt used
3) Blend in a blender or food processor with almond milk
4) Enjoy!

General Notes:
-If you prefer a soft-serve type situation, use plain yogurt instead of Greek, and add less milk
-If you accidentally add too much milk in the blending process, stick it back in the freezer for about 10 minutes. You should have perfect consistency once again:)

Tried and True Flavors:
*Cinnamon Vanilla (pictured above recipe)-
Greek yogurt, agave nectar+stevia, vanilla extract, cinnamon
